Does anyone else own a Cuttlebug die cast machine? I have a question...

I just got mine today, and it looks so neat so far - I can't wait to get an alphabet die and really get to work! But I do have one question...I bought a squares die to use with it, and I set it up just the way that the instruction manual said to - the thick A pad on the bottom, a clear B pad on top of that, the die next, the paper next, and topped it off with another clear B pad. It ran through and cut the squares with no problem, but it also left an imprint of the whole die in the top clear B pad - like it actually cut into the plastic a bit, just not all the way through. I'm sure it'll never fade off, it's that deep. Is this normal? It didn't say anything about it in the instruction manual...and I sure don't want to break it when I've just gotten it. Any tips, please?

Congrats on your Cuttlebug purchase! I love mine! It is perfectly normal for it to leave an imprint on the B pad. It will leave an imprint every time you use it. Eventually you will have to replace the B pad, they say after about 500 cuts. You can switch the B pads and turn them around so that they last longer, using both sides. Also make sure you alternate the B pads because they will warp. I usually cut with one side then turn it over. Next time I will use the B pad that was on the bottom. Hope this helps! If you have any other questions about the Cuttlebug let me know. Happy Scrappin!
